Many denominational believers wonder why churches of Christ partake of the Lord’s Supper every week. Partaking weekly supposedly lessens the significance of the memorial.
New Testament Christians partake of the Lord’s Supper every week for the same reason denominations take up an offering every week. The Lord commands it.
I Corinthians 16:2 says “On the first day of every week let each one of you lay something aside, storing up as he may prosper, that there be no collections when I come.”
Acts 20:7 says, “Now on the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread…”
In the original Greek, the words for “first day of every week” in I Corinthians 16:2 are “kata mian sabbatou.” These original Greek words are the exact same ones that are used in Acts 20:7.
Denominational leaders seem to understand correctly that the collection is to be taken up weekly, so why do they disobey the Lord’s command by neglecting to partake of the Lord’s Supper each week?
